Spanish Cuisine Cookbooks

smtucker | Mar 23, 201507:04 PM     10

For several years, I have put off a "grand" vacation for many reasons which I won't list here. Some personal news has required that I not wait any longer, and so in two weeks I am off for a 6-week adventure. Paris is no issue. I have cooked in France for years and years, and I know the cuisine intimately.

From there, we head to Spain. We will have apartments in Seville, Valencia, and Barcelona. Here I could use some assistance. I own the José Andres books [haven't actually cooked from them] but that is it. [Tapas: A taste of spain, and Made in Spain: Spanich Dishes for the American Tabl.]

For those more familiar with Spanish food and Spanish cookbooks than I am, are the Andres books worth the weight they would add to our luggage? Are there some other books that are more worthwhile? Are there books that are worthwhile but available in digital format so that they don't add weight?

I have one suggestion of "The New Spanish Table" by Brenzen which appears to be available as a kindle book. Other recommendation would be most welcome.

Many thanks!
